You can’t from that article, because the article isn’t really about their

data or model. There are a couple quotes from the guy who did the model, very non-specific quotes without much reference to any data. Says south Florida could be bad, because there are a lot of people (“tinder” he calls them) down there. And Alabama could be bad.

Then there are one off references to a bunch of other models or data sets, including data the Post apparently collected itself, that point to something in one city or another - without any explanation of the model, what it’s really measuring, or anything. Also without any reference or discussion of all the places the models show are moving in a good direction (but we can’t share positive news now can we, this is a pandemic, must bed bad all the time). Throw in a handful of short one off quotes from people without knowing anything about the context of those statements, and you have an article designed to sensationalize and scare - without any really information about the experts, their qualifications, their models or what they are actually predicting.

But that is typical of the media, so it’s what we should expect.
